State Profiles


Today’s career and technical education systems are evolving to meet the needs of students and employers in the 21st century. While these robust systems have always provided support and guidance to students seeking rewarding careers, many are also leading innovation, initiating transformational school reform efforts, and blurring the lines between CTE and traditional academic instruction. At the same time, each state's system is unique, with different governance structures and policy and program priorities. Find out more about each state's CTE system below! 

These states profiles are in progress, so some content may not be available. ACTE wants all state profiles to include the most current and valuable CTE-related information available. If you are aware of research or information you believe should be considered, have updates to existing information, or if you identify technical problems on these webpages, please contact ACTE Research Manager Catherine Imperatore. The most recent major updates to these profiles occurred in March 2015; minor updates occur year-round.

Want to share this information with policymakers, business or media? You can download a printable, one-page document with basics on your state's CTE program, including delivery, funding, enrollment, performance statistics and profiles of exemplary programs, with our State Fact Sheets. For a more in-depth look at annual policies related to CTE across the states, check out State Policies Impacting CTE: Year in Review, a collaboration between ACTE and the National Association of State Directors of CTE Consortium (NASDCTEc). NASDCTEc also has state-specific CTE resources that can help you understand CTE in your state and across the nation.
